Item description for The Preacher's Commentary- Vol. 24- Matthew (Preachers Commentary #24) by Myron Augsburger...
Overview For those on a firing line--in pulpits, classes, Bible study groups, and fellowships, this is a distinctly different kind of commentary. This series combines historical setting and textual interpretation with spiritual insights and contemporary illustrations that are specifically designed for those endowed with the privilege of communicating God's Word. The end result is a commentary by preachers/teachers for other preachers/teachers that is the ultimate resource for sermon and lesson preparation. Features: Outlines Section by section expositions Illustrations Applications Dr. Myron S. Augsburger is a world-recognized scholar, preacher, and teacher. He served as President of Eastern Mennonite University, President of the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities, inner-city pastor in Washington, D.C., and adjunct professor of theology for several seminaries. He has written more than 20 books. Now retired, he lectures worldwide, including overseas ministries in India, Croatia, and Ethiopia. He and his artist wife, Esther, have three daughters.
General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations.
The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.
